, and it has carried us to our destination. have you ever wondered how elevators were -- work? we check out the need outside the elevator using current technology and we learn about the latest destination elevated technology all here in san francisco. we will also visit the machinery where all the behind- the-scenes gears control these incredible machines. we are very fortunate today to have an expert with those who is going to walk us are around elevators in san francisco. can you tell us about the history of elevators in san francisco? the measure -- >> sure. the history of elevator technology evolves with the city. first elevators were installed for moving materials in the 1860's. in the 1870's, the first passenger elevator was installed, and that allowed building heights to go up to about seven floors. starting in the 18 eighties, 1890's, the first electric elevators were installed. that allowed for buildings to go up even higher, even more than 10 floors, and those were the first elevators that became representative of what we consider modern elevators today. >> so the height of buildi
and how the information is being used. also for the ftc approved five years self-regulatory program prescribes requirements to ourself regulatory consumer dispute and h.r. 1263 this draft takes it with a different approach the balance is the privacy of innovation. creek dr. was involved with asking comments that he and i have developed and received a 70 different organizations universities and colleges and these were very helpful and i have used them in my draft it is very complicated the it to seek the input from others but ultimately we should have a privacy bill out of the subcommittee to get to the full committee to get into discussion perk rival conclude by saying something that was said earlier when marty 2% we are on the cusp of a new revolution come with this is an exciting time for all of us and for securely when you see the new products to have the use of them we must continue to rely on the free market to let the government step in as will rogers said the whole internet was devolve without government and continues to evolve without government and is some point* there shou
existing law, and to use whatever administrative tools they have their disposal that did not require congress to pass official legislation. at some point, we will pass additional legislation, hopefully in a positive direction. if they do the job that they can do now, and they are proposing to do, it will move us forward. it is only going to be two years. >> i think we have time for one more question. i should go to that side. >> wait for the microphone. >> you said in your speech? you were finding that the industry was much more on board into a dozen 9 with some kind of a positive vote -- 2009 was some kind of a positive vote. where is the balance? where are you saying you support from industries or regulation? >> i mentioned the coalition that we have behind legislation. that was an impressive coalition. it would be addressed eventually ended the to have some rules of the road. the two industries that come to mind, one is: the other is oil. -- coal and the other is oil. i am reminded of the situation we had been we were reviewing the acid rain problem. we were so. to get legislation
-ashbury neighborhood counseling recycle center, following that particular hearing, we used the information, which i thought was helpful in constructing a resolution before us today. i want to thank supervisor avalos and mar for the co- sponsors of of the resolution. i do not plan on this being another in-depth hearing as it was two weeks ago, but as we were able to will document from that particular hearing, it seemed rather hasty and inconsistent 5 rec and parks department and the part of the environment and city to move on this termination of lease on the recycle center by using the premise that the recycling center is a nonconforming use for this park -- for this part of golden gate park, and as it relates to the master plan, yet not exercise any due diligence as the city had done elsewhere in trying to help a resource like the recycling center moved to a different location. that lack of due diligence, i think, proves it was a rash decision in the way that it was processed by the wreck and park department, compared to the water recycling plant that is being proposed by the puc in golden gate par
-- everyone emphasizes they are not us affective but they are still used very good -- are still used. the opt out option where we take up a phone or e-mail, but have something where a third party can be the one who does it, where it is registered and i will not get that you're a good in my home and we have three lines -- arlin will not get that. in my home we have three lines we opted out. i do not think advertisers use it much at all. >> thank you. next speaker please. >> i am an employee of yellow pages, but i am also a resident here. i have the opportunity to be on the phone with plenty of advertisers that are going to be affected by this, not only for income for their businesses but also with the staff stay employed. -- staff to stay employed. i think it is important that plumber's still use the yellow pages, attorneys, locksmiths. there are a number of businesses of rely on print advertising. there are a lot of facts about the internet. we understand that, but it is important to understand that the arch will cost for advertisers -- the actual cost for advertises is much greater. it costs
proportions that is before us. so what we would like to do a this point is take a few minutes in order to unpack some of the issues we are dealing with, perhaps to benefit from jim woolsey's expertise and think about how we can go back to our communities and mobilize their attention in their energies to have a real impact, and also, to call upon david saperstein and your thoughts so that we can deal with the issue is. there are those that we are better able to address that we all want to work towards, so let's open up for questions, please. comments from the floor. yes, hi, thank you. >> mike stern from san antonio. i did not hear any mention of biodiesel. i have heard roughly one-third of the transportation sector is diesel, and you can actually substitute biodiesel for conventional diesel boat, i think, with minimal and perhaps no retrofitting, so why is this not more on the table? it looks like there is a lot of potential there? >> there is a lot of potential, especially in a lot of plants that, along, especially things that grow in desert and do not grow on other types of land. bas
that it would get close quickly, because a lot of people that if you are going to stop us from building a new one, this one will stay open forever. this is not true. we could not have gotten there without ms. hale and director harrington, who helped us to get rid of the old one, so this is a big deal. i will just add a little cautionary note, that whatever jurisdiction the puc has, and i am not sure how much you have, but, please, exercise whatever jurisdiction you have got to make sure pg -- pg&e gets it done quickly so we can have that part of the city back, where they used to be a power plant, so, thanks. president vietor: director beach: -- president vietor: thank you. and they also want to thank the staff we do we also want to thank the staff -- we also want to thank the staff at puc. there is the climate change, so that is exciting to be able to see this extent in the right direction. thank you. >> that concludes our port, but it is a great lady -- leading to our next item. -- a great lead-in. secretary housh: the resource plan. >> this is our third time talking about this item. we came
for the circumstances. further work with mta will be needed on that. >> the idea is, people would use public transportation to get to bart -- you know what i'm saying? the infrastructure question is always -- >> this area is challenged with the constraints of space. the intersection between vehicles, fundamentally and pedestrians. there is not a lot of physical space for pedestrian. sidewalks are narrow. >> i used to live there -- >> at the corner of diamond and bosworth, people are overflowing into the traffic lanes, literally to wait for buses. we are facing a bit of a car versus person walking -- >> i am all about transit first. i just think the parking concerned that people raise our kind of nuance. i do not drive but that does not mean we have to be insensitive to what is going on out there. >> there is practically only so much space we can provide. >> finally, i sat in on one conversation between bart, i do not want to go into the details, but i think there has been some miscommunication between bart and maybe our department, on some level. at some point, hopefully, there is better com
that is available to us so that we balance the line's directions -- it is important for us to balance the system because everything goes through the subway. if something happened on one line, it can affect all the others. on a number of occasions, what we do to balance the trains -- if you had five trains in a row outbound on the n line, we would use a switch back to turn one of those trains in bound, so if people were waiting, they could have a train coming as close to schedule as we can. it is a common technique in the industry. the reason why use it is it is one of the service management techniques we can use with our physical plant. we have talked about the potential of using gap trains, buses, but a switchback is essentially a service management technique to address a delay in the system. the second part of your question? commissioner campos: maybe you are already addressing this, but the switch back rate for the 14 line relative to the others? maybe you do not keep that record. >> what i wanted to show you today on the 14th line is we do a number of things in addition to switchbacks, swapp
it is better, a lot of us feel a could be stronger and more explicit. it is only about a page and a half. there are other aspects of the electric research plan that cca could be more iterative about. the key problem that we noted was that when they put together the advisory committee, there were no consultants on that committee. that is why it is not as robust as we feel it needs to be. what we respectfully ask the staff to do, after today, there will be two consultants. and i would ask lafco to have those consultants do that work. we make sure we are covering all the bases. those of you that remember the power plant battle might remember the previous 2002 electric resources plan was a problem because it promoted that power plants. staff and other officials with constantly bring up the electric resources plan as an excuse to say that we should build a power plant. that is why it is crucial that it does in due diligence to make sure that this is really robust on cca. that way we got, the hearings later that says it does not specify. we need that to happen so that we can be confident [chim

guess i would say that the criteria that we used was were we aware of a project? that was a fundamental measure. so, for example, there was talk over time about the cow palace. nothing was a recent on that. so we did not include anything related to that. what we did include was what we have a readily available information for hi, -- what we did have readily available information for. vice president moran: and there were some cow palace's. there seemed to be some things that were not on hear it. it seems small. i think there is more activity going on. it is my understanding that we will do this from time to time. >> those are definitely within the envelope of what is expected in the customer service area, and we can ensure that we will get more with the management plan. that is when we will see real data. vice president moran: ok, two other comments on that. one, it talks about the ceqa process on individual projects when they come up. also, for the two projects that were highlighted, those were not things we would be doing. >> that is correct. vice president moran: and the final issue i

coastal town of -- a key coastal town. the libyan forces used tanks and artillery. our world affairs editors sent this report. >> at dawn this morning, it was a media elite clear that the rebels enthusiasm and fighting spirit was fading. it has carried them 150 miles westward along the coast, beating colonel gaddafi's troops back. but other supply lines are stretched and gaddafi's troops are fighting a more friendly territory. we went with the rebels to the next town, which they attacked fiercely. but the offender's head -- the defenders had better weapons. when we went there, we found the rebels had faded away during the night. from a distance collies i checkpoint which we eventually decided was probably manned by gaddafi loyalists. it was. a couple of soldiers opened fire in our direction. >> keep your head down. >> we drove back hastily down the road to the important oil town captured by the rebels on friday night. today, far fewer of them were making a stand here. the rebels are being forced all the way back to ras lanuf. it has been quite a success for colonel gaddafi's army. th

of oakland. it is unfortunate in california that jerry used to say that in and he was campaigning for the first time, this is only -- of the budget, more than we spend on our universities. how we spend money on the criminal-justice system has to be part of the solution as well. they will be tied up in court for years. in addition, they are forgetting the multiplier. how much we play for unemployment? how much we pay for prime? those are the factors that you have to look for. >> and do you have had back up plan for moving some of these projects forward? will the governor be successful in eliminating these agencies? >> we are doing is pretty silly things. you will see the special session where i am selling back- and-forth. i have to protect money as a last property and the money based in town -- and the money base. there could be some strange blending not controlled by the city. >> what the worst does this open and what does this represent for each of -- what opportunities does this open and what does this represent for each of your cities? >> we started china sf a couple of years a
serious reductions in spending than that. these -- the language the majority leader's using seemed like, to me, recalls the old language in 1994, reckless republican spending cuts and poor people are thrown into the streets and that sort of thing. but what happened in 1994? in 1994 the american people, through their newly elected congress, balanced the budget in four years. they balanced the budget when people said it couldn't be done. they said that the spending reductions were going to destroy america and growth an prosperity and everyone -- and prosperity and everyone else that they could imagine. but it didn't happen. it helped create a period of outstanding growth. tuesday, we're told, we'll have a tea vote. it's a very important vote because it deals with the level of spending this country is going to participate in. it's going to make a national decisions that really important. we passed a two-week continuing resolution that reduced spending by $4 billion over that period keeping us on track to meet the house passed goal of a $61 billion reduction in spending this fiscal year. it

people elected the president and the united states played a very important role. starting in 2007, the u.s. along with others in the west, drew back involvement. instead of continuing a high level of engagement to consolidate a new democracy, congo was treated as it was a well-functioning state which the united states could safely withdrawn. the notion was dispelled when rebels waged a new battle in congo that brought death, displacement and destruction. our government has a long history of involvement in the congo from our shameful role and three decades support of a dictator. in 2000, the united states helped bring the end of fighting forces and provided key elections and the past few years, secretary of state hillary clinton visited the region and we have escalated our efforts in eastern congo. it has provided humanitarian assistance to the congo. this commitment has paid dividends in congo. but with conflict persisting and elections coming up, we must develop a strategy and full youly engage in this issue. with national elections only eight months away on november 27, the u.s. is not f

, that is the private sector sustainable kind of growth. now let us talk about the deficit and the issues of debt facing the economy. as all of you know what matters is what is our debt to gdp level and what matters is as the simpson-bowles commission revealed that is not what is important. conflating long and fiscal challenges with the deficit which is big this year is very dangerous because it leads you to do things that are not correct. we signed a tax deal in december in a bipartisan manner which was important. it gives payroll tax cut to encourage workers and encourage hiring. with incentives for education. all of those are important and everyone knew when they signed it, with 80 senators signing that deal, they knew it would increase the deficit in 2011. they're on the full growth path and a position to confront long run fiscal issues. and therefore we need to cut, in some sense running into this what the medium and long run programs are for the short run driven by the business. the president in the state of union outlined a budget that cuts discretionary spending down to a share of the economy no
senator jerry moran, senate of appropriations, joins us now. senator, welcome to the "glenn beck program." nice to meet you, sir. >> good to be back with you. thank you for the opportunity. >> judge napolitano: what is the latest, senator. it gather that the vote has been put off again, that there is a republican measure on the floor, democratic measure on the floor and the senate is not going to vote on it now until tomorrow. is that the case? >> the expectation was there may have been a vote this everything. it now appears it's carried over until tuesday morning. the expectation is that there will be two proposals, one what you call the paltry $61 billion preduction. hr-1, sent to us in the senate by the house of representatives. >> judge napolitano: great. >> then the even more paltry $6 billion cut suggested by president obama and democrat leaders in the senate. and there will be a vote on each one of those. my guess is that neither one of them will receive the 60 votes necessary to move forward. and then we're once again back to negotiations with i suppose democrat leaders. and perh
to have to sit here and ask these questions because you haven't given us responses. that is what is the most painful part of this. it's our job to ask the question and get the information and for someone to accept some sort of responsibility. >> udcs board of trustees did promise to have that internal audit finished by the end of the month, and shawn, they did motion if they do find that there may have been inappropriate travel, they do expect to ask president sessums to pay back some of that meany if they find that that is necessary and that something went wrong. >> at this point, it's up to the board what happens to sessum, right? >> very much so. the board is ultimately responsible for hiring them and they're responsible for his fate. that being said, the chairman said something interesting today saying there are seven voluntary members of the board, she one of the members and for two years, udc has been waiting for the mayor to appoint eight vacant seats and said they're overwhelmed. >> i understand that something else came up. city council confirmed something, they were unha
